Love doesn’t come easily to any of the characters in the trilogy, which makes sense considering that earth is dealing with not only proof that there is life on other planets, but that two of those races are on earth. One of those races is “good,” and wants to protect earth. The other is “bad” and has come to earth to take over because they failed taking over the good alien’s planet. The author brought all the stories to a believable conclusion that allowed even more growth for the characters.
I enjoyed every page of this book and I look forward to seeing more of what the author holds in her imagination.
I do think this book can stand alone, but like many other trilogies, you get a lot more from the story if you read them all, in order.

As stated, I've wanted to read Jax's story since book one, Collision. I knew he'd be emotionally withdrawn and kind of a moron about it but I didn't realize how much I'd want to punch him in the face through most of the book - in a good way. He was emotionally withdrawn and an idiot but he was completely aware of it. As Jax is forced to, yet again, face the loss and betrayal of those he loves, he has to decide if he will allow the past to define his entire future or if he can finally move forward.
Talla was a bit of a surprise - I didn't expect her to be so willing to forgive the past with the Sephians or the humans or to be able to trust the alliances as much as she did. Her unwavering trust in Nalea and Roden could have come across as mindless devotion but it is offset well by her clear understanding of the war and the political situation facing the Draeken and the other races currently inhabiting Earth. She is every bit as much a protector and soldier as Jax and equally ready to lay down her life if it means her race survives and is at peace. But she is much more emotionally aware than Jax, something that I wouldn't have expected from someone who has been basically imprisoned for a few years.
Explosion was a disturbing, but probably completely accurate, portrayal of what humans would do should aliens land on Earth. It's a little sad that, while I was horrified by the decisions made, I wasn't even remotely surprised by Rae's depiction of the genocide and war prison camp atmosphere. It's a testament to Rae's writing skill that the relationship between Talla and Jax was so realistically portrayed in the midst of the violence of the war raging around them.
As the final book in the trilogy, Explosion also had to wrap up the remaining storylines from Collision and Implosion - which it did seamlessly. We once again witness the relationships of Sienna and Legian and Nalea and Roden. Nalea gets to face off with Otas again and Ace wanders through keeping everyone honest.
Despite ongoing editing issues throughout the trilogy, I would definitely recommend the Colliding Worlds books to anyone who enjoys science fiction or paranormal romance. Just be sure to read them in order or you'll likely be confused.

Every decision Jax has to make is difficult and someone will suffer no matter what he chooses. He can save the innocent or remain the dutiful soldier, should he follow orders given to him or betray his country, he can get the girl or save himself future misery, but they are never simple and always have heavy consequences. The more he is around Talla the more he realizes he may have to walk down a road he vowed never to revisit. He also knows that from his experience with the new Earth residents that things need to change when it comes to their treatment.
Talla and the majority of her Draeken people just want a home. They are on the verge of extinction. Many have been forced to live within the confines of what amounts to the alien prison camp with their wings bound and tracking chips imbedded in their skin. Its not much of a life. She wants so much more for her people and she is willing to do whatever it takes to see that they get it. That includes going up against the bad seed that is making all alien races look vile and evil.
I highly recommend reading the Colliding Worlds trilogy in order. Much of what happens and the conflicts that are resolved in Explosion began in Collision, and Implosion. I also found that this book was appropriately titled. It was the explosive end to a great series. If you like your Earth based sci fi to have a dash of romance you will certainly enjoy Berinn’s books.
